Saturday, December 15, 2012 - OK, I like this wine, but it needs 2 things - it must be decanted and it needs food. By itself the wine is disappointing, it is too herbal and woodsy without much fruit. However, after a 1 hour decant, a night in the bottle without the cork and with food it works. It is very herbaceous, but the fruit does emerge.
I would not go out and buy another bottle because it does not line up with my palate but it turned out quite nice in the end.
